Posh Chairman Reveals Town Contact
Friday, 22nd Jun 2018 09:25
Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has revealed that Blues owner Marcus Evans recently contacted Posh director of football Barry Fry.
MacAnthony, responding to a Town fan’s question regarding possible Blues interest in any of his players on Twitter, said winger Marcus Maddison, who is understood to be interesting several Championship clubs, wasn’t the subject of the call.
In May, Town were among three Championship sides said to be keen on another Peterborough wideman, Gwion Edwards (pictured above).
In an earlier tweet, MacAnthony said he had rebuffed interest in Edwards from a Championship club, who he confirmed weren’t Sheffield United without giving any further clues regarding the identity of the suitor.
Nottingham Forest and Bristol City were the other clubs previously said to be interested in the 25-year-old former Wales U21 international, who has a year left on his contract at London Road.
New Town manager Paul Hurst has said he is looking to add wingers to a squad which he feels is "slightly unbalanced".

Wing Wonders (Part Two) by ElephantintheRoom
As the sixties morphed into the seventies, wing wonders at Portman Road were a bit like London buses. Four had come along at once, though in truth one or two (like those same London buses) were also easy to miss.
2019/20 - Grating Expectations by tractorboykent
A lot of comments at the moment would suggest that we are in the midst of a(nother) crisis. Whilst the league table doesn’t reflect that, the perception is likely more based on our own expectations of where we’d be at this stage.
Wing Wonders (Part One) by ElephantintheRoom
It’s a curiosity of Town’s great years that the two big successes – winning the league under Alf Ramsey and the UEFA Cup under Bobby Robson were based on teams without true wingers.
John Cobbold’s Ace Gardener by ElephantintheRoom
For newer Town supporters perhaps, the name Colin Viljoen has disappeared into the mists of time. But for those of us who started supporting Town in the 60s his name is fondly recalled as a true great. His highlights reel alone (alas it exists only in memory) would mark him out as someone special.
Big Al by ElephantintheRoom
When the Kevin Beattie statue is revealed, I suspect it will be his great pal and fellow central defensive titan, Allan Hunter, who will do the revealing. What will be going through Big Al’s mind I wonder? Sadness at his friend’s passing – but mixed with fierce pride perhaps.
